Revello Barbera d'Alba 2017 image
I WONDER IF MY BOTTLE WAS OK OR NOT?
Posted Jul 11, 2019[Verified]

"This gets good reviews but my bottle had a sort of sharp, raisiney sherry taste to it. After an hour it settled down but was still sharp and astringent. Maybe I just have no idea of what a nice Barbera should taste like but my bottle was not very good. Perhaps try before buying a case."

VERY NICE!!

"I had this at a wine bar and then bought a case here. This has the fruit on the front and then the transition to the "franc" earthy dry at the end. I am no expert but I really like it, and it is a reasonable price. Maybe add a slight chill to the bottle; also, better if you let it sit in the decanter for 45 minutes. You will enjoy it."

PLEASANT

"This is a pleasant cabernet but overpriced. Nothing wrong with it, but lots of other really good cabs for less money."

NICE! DECANT FOR AN HOUR

"Nice cab franc, fruit and a bit of flower on the front and then a mild cab franc finish. Make sure you let this decant an hour before drinking, maybe a quick chill if it is hot inside. This is twenty five bucks a bottle at the other place I shop, so I would grab one while you are here."
